1:15
trying to know you all and to join the
1:17
network yeah you just moved in from from
1:20
Mexico right you moved into the
1:22
temperature from Playa del Carmen Mexico
1:24
I traveled for a year around the world
1:27
so I did four continents I think was 17
1:30
no four continents 11 countries 17
1:33
cities and then ended in Mexico in state
1:36
of Mexico for a year and realized that
1:38
for my client base I needed to be back
1:40
in the United States and so I chose the
1:42
consumer product hub of the country
1:44
which is Tampa Florida yeah Tampa
1:47
Florida definitely has it we have so
1:49
many people here product developer sales
1:51
I mean we have everything here a lot of
1:54
people what's weird is don't really
1:56
realize that and you did and being able
1:59
to say you know what that's where I got
2:00
to go I mean that takes a lot to get up
2:02
and move to another place just for
2:05
starting a business I think that's right
2:07
yeah thank you yeah absolutely you know
2:10
when it comes to clients and running a
2:11
business it's like what is the
2:12
thing that you can do to make this
2:14
easier for your clients better for your
2:16
clients how can you provide more service
2:18
better service more access and typically
2:20
that means being where the action
2:22
happens and a lot of people aren't
2:23
willing to make the necessary sacrifices
2:26
or take the necessary risk to be where
2:28
you need to be to make magic happen and
2:31
so luckily I'm one of those people
2:34
that's why I'm here I'm here just
2:36
providing better service for my clients
2:38
you know it just going back a little bit
2:41
and you you definitely do make things
2:43
happen
2:43
there's no about matter just your
2:44
presence the way you speak how you talk
2:47
I mean it's great to be able to talk to
2:48
somebody that has that I don't know that
2:51
presence that you know what I'm gonna
2:54
get it done
2:54
yeah you know yeah yeah it's one of
2:58
those things you kind of just wake up
2:59
and you say okay what am I gonna do
3:00
today what needs to get done
3:02
today it's like what's the one thing I
3:04
got to do today to get me to the next
3:05
thing that I need to do tomorrow right
3:07
and I think a lot of people they think
3:08
too big they're like what's the thing
3:10
that I gotta do to get me where I need
3:12
to be in 90 days and that's overwhelming
3:14
and so one of the things I do is I mean
3:17
what do I need to do today just today
3:19
what's on the list that has to be done
3:21
today I'll do it tomorrow tomorrow and
3:24
you look up 90 days later you've done 90
3:26
plus things and now you already need to
3:28
be so you know there's a method to my
3:30
madness and being in this business we're
3:35
all little mad there's yes I mean as you
3:38
said and going back to know people don't
3:41
realize that you are an inventor you
3:43
have a product you've you've done the
3:45
whole deal you've gone through the gamut
3:46
on I believe you license the product
3:48
already so he's not like you're just
3:49
woke up one day and said you know what
3:51
I'm going to help inventors I'm gonna
3:52
help business people
3:53
I mean you've put yourself through the
3:55
wringer you know the ins and outs of the
3:57
business right ya know so listen I
3:59
definitely put myself like through the
4:02
wringer in now without any help and
4:04
support so I learned it the hard way you
4:06
know I did Google University I you know
4:09
I went to watched all kinds of videos
4:11
and what's funny about that is when I
4:13
was much younger I never wanted to be an
4:15
inventor I likes building things but it
4:18
was never like my idea to be an inventor
4:20
but I loved infomercials and when I look
4:23
back now on like the things that I love
4:25
like tool time
4:26
like TV shows I was really into and like
4:29
the stuff and I just watched late-night
4:30
infomercials I didn't buy anything
4:32
because I was a kid right I would just
4:33
watch the infomercials and all the
4:35
exciting products and it never really
4:37
connected for me like the love of
4:40
inventions and consumer products when I
4:42
was younger it wasn't until I started
4:44
you know I had an idea and I built a
4:46
product which was so far left from what
4:48
I was doing and went through the whole
4:51
process and the process was a lot I mean
4:54
it was a lot there was a lot of wins
4:56
early wins and then there were a lot of
4:58
ton of early losses you know before
5:02
getting back to wins again
5:03
so knowing the losses experiencing the
5:06
losses both in time and in money makes
5:08
it a lot easier for me to talk to my
5:10
inventors and say okay listen don't do
5:12
this or consider this instead or stay
5:15
away from this you know so or if you
5:18
decide to go down there I told you so
5:20
right because there's a lot of that too
5:23
there's a lot I told you I told you
5:27
people sometimes have to listen on their
5:30
own I mean they have to learn on their
5:32
own and it's hard to tell them but you
5:35
just want to catch them before they go
5:36
too far yeah yes okay listen you're
5:39
hanging off this cliff over here there
5:42
is not you are not gonna land on your
5:43
feet so I'm holding onto the back of
5:46
your shirt I'm not letting you go
5:47
because this isn't the cliff this isn't
5:49
the one to jump off of no and so it's
5:52
it's rewarding though because it's nice
5:55
to be able you know what this light you
5:56
do it every day to work with people who
5:58
have these ideas they're so passionate
6:00
about it they believe in it they're
6:02
willing to risk it all for these ideas
6:05
and it's a beautiful thing to see that
6:07
kind of you know compact or that kind of
6:08
passion and dedication to something that
6:12
it doesn't exist because a lot of other
6:14
industries people are building products
6:16
that exists you know they're
6:17
dropshipping something that's already
6:18
made they're ordering from aliexpress
6:20
they're not really taking any real risk
6:22
because the market has already validated
6:24
this thing for them and so inventors
6:26
hold a special place in my heart because
6:28
these are the people who basically don't
6:30
know what's gonna happen until it
6:32
happens and they do it anyway and so
6:35
like I feel like they need more support
6:37
than any other entrepreneur or business
6:39
professional out there
6:40
because they don't have you know a safe
6:43
place to land they don't know what's
6:44
down there until they get down there
6:46
yeah well it's curious to me that you
6:49
say that as you know before I got into
6:52
the business of helping inventors and
6:53
helping them forward I was an inventor
6:55
and I kind of and what from what you're
6:57
saying is I ran into the same issue
6:59
whilst I was inventing or trying to I
7:02
was kept running to roadblocks where
7:04
there wasn't something out there no one
7:05
to help and I transitioned into
7:08
realizing that I wasn't just the only
7:10
one who needed help that there were so
7:11
many people out there that needed help
7:13
and it sounds like you had that passion
7:15
too you became that inventor but you
7:17
realized there's a much bigger calling
7:19
yeah and that wasn't immediate when I
7:22
actually built my product company I
7:24
thought that product company was going
7:25
to be the thing where I ended you know
7:27
it was like I'm building this product
7:28
company you know this this athletic
7:31
apparel company and there's this new
7:34
type of technology to what I'm doing and
7:36
this thing is gonna make me super rich
7:38
and I'm gonna have it in my family for
7:40
twenty years thirty years and a year and
7:43
a half into it I realized that I did not
7:45
like having a glove company I was like
7:46
this is not what I'm gonna do
7:49
like with my life like I don't want to
7:51
do this and there's other things that I
7:53
want to do and then what happened was
7:54
people started to ask me because they
7:56
saw how successful I was and they were
7:58
like well how are you doing this how are
7:59
you doing this and I realized that I
8:01
enjoyed the process of building that
8:05
company more than I did actually running
8:08
that company I was like I want to create
8:10
something new like every time I turned
8:12
around I wanted to create something new
8:13
and I was neglecting the thing that I
8:15
created and I was like okay I need to
8:17
get rid of this day-to-day
8:19
responsibility of this thing and focus
8:21
on creating new stuff and then it was
8:24
like how can I create new stuff all the
8:25
time if I've never sell the stuff and it
8:28
dawned on me that the way for me to
8:30
constantly create new things were to
8:32
support other people it's a lot easier
8:34
to support a thousand people with new
8:36
ideas and to come up with a thousand new
8:38
ideas and I just enjoy the process so
8:41
much like from the beginning that
8:43
groundwork gritty work you know the
8:46
heartache I love that so much to where
8:48
it was like this is where I'm supposed
8:50
to be this was be helping these people
8:52
do this thing
8:53
and saving them a lot of time and money
8:55
that I wasn't able to save for myself
8:57
yeah and it and it obviously works I
9:00
spoke with some of the clients that work
9:02
with you they're so super excited I
9:04
think that having you to to throw things
9:08
off of and ask questions it keeps them
9:10
passionate about it because I know that
9:12
when I would run into a roadblock
9:13
it would really knock me back to the
9:15
point where I was like I just I don't
9:17
know if I want to do this but having you
9:19
to help them it seems like they keep
9:21
that passion ism through the whole
9:23
product cycle yeah so and that was the
9:26
biggest issue I ran into right it was
9:28
like I would find myself hiding under
9:30
the covers for like days at a time and
9:31
we sort of time thinking like why did I
9:33
do this what am i doing like am I making
9:35
a big mistake
9:36
I can't believe I'm risking it all for
9:38
this thing there's a lot of stuff doubt
9:40
and one of the great things about the
9:42
way we operate is we do have it started
9:45
out with just weekly live calls to
9:46
support them and to ask questions and to
9:48
kind of talk them off the ledge and to
9:50
you know boost up their energy and then
9:53
I was like you know I'm gonna add
9:53
another day so now it's two times a week
9:55
I felt like you know one time a week was
9:58
good but twice a week I can get him at
10:00
the beginning of the week and I can get
10:01
him at the like midpoint end of the week
10:04
so just in case they needed that extra
10:06
support coming off of a weekend they get
10:08
me on Monday we actually just finished
10:09
live Q&A; like right before this and then
10:12
they gave me on Wednesday night right so
10:15
it's like you guys get me when you need
10:17
me and you get the team also and that's
10:19
support I know it's a thing that carries
10:21
them over because they'll get on and
10:22
they'll be like I just don't know I
10:24
think something you know this I know
10:26
that I'm like oh no this is good this
10:28
means this this doesn't work this isn't
10:30
the person to work with this is good
10:32
scratch them off the list let's keep
10:33
going right because a lot of times you
10:35
get like that rejection or you hit that
10:37
road blocking you're like what am I
10:38
gonna do now
10:39
I'm like you just eliminated something
10:41
this is good let's move on you know and
10:45
some of the perspective the different
10:47
perspective I think really really helps
10:49
them when it comes to like getting over
10:51
that hump and then they have a beautiful
10:52
community because I don't do one-on-one
10:55
it's a group everyone signs a
10:57
nondisclosure agreement and so they
10:59
don't just give me they get the other 35
11:00
to 40 inventors that are working on
11:03
their products at the same time and
11:04
every single one of them says something
11:06
if you're on that last
11:07
all you have to say something you need
11:09
to tell me what you're doing where
11:10
you're at where you're struggling and if
11:12
I if other inventors have feedback they
11:14
tell you you know yeah oh yeah I love it
11:18
I love the community yeah well I could
11:20
tell you do the great part again one of
11:23
the great parts I shouldn't say that is
11:24
that I love how you turn around
11:26
negatives even when we were speaking I
11:29
would mention something you say well
11:30
there's a benefit of that and you know
11:32
it really can help people who some
11:34
people are just negative or they've just
11:35
been doing this for so long that they're
11:38
not trying to be negative they're just
11:39
down and I love that you spin things to
11:41
be a positive yeah and I think that when
11:44
you can spin it to be able to be a
11:46
positive it allows you to move forward
11:47
with a lot much more like fervor right
11:50
because I you're right I have inventors
11:52
who were working on products for 14
11:54
years seven years like they've been
11:56
working on these things forever there
11:57
some who've just got an idea and they're
11:59
lucky because they found me immediately
12:01
actually they had an idea and then
12:03
there's some who's been working on it
12:04
for years and years and they're just
12:05
like I just don't know what to do I said
12:07
well the good thing is you know what not
12:08
to do so like let's let's write down all
12:11
the things not to do and now don't do
12:15
those things you know it's like so here
12:18
are the things to do focus on these
12:20
things instead focus on how to do that
12:22
and if that one doesn't work for you
12:24
let's come up with something that does
12:26
work it's all just trial and error and
12:28
the upside of you know working with our
12:30
team is that it's not just like blind
12:32
try over there it's like these are trial
12:35
and error of proven techniques so if
12:38
this one doesn't work for you it's got
12:39
to be one of these other two you know
12:41
it's like there's only a certain way to
12:43
do this as you know there's a certain
12:45
way to do this there's the process is
12:47
the same for every inventor just the
12:49
product is different hmm but the process
12:51
is the same and so it's like it's either
12:53
gonna be one of these three things and
12:55
if it's not then we had a whole other
12:57
conversation ahead because you're
12:59
building something that's outside the
13:01
realm of what's been built before and
13:03
since no one is doing that you know do
13:09
you do you find yourself and just from
13:12
speak with you I know that you are a
13:13
highly proficient business person there
13:16
is no getting around it
13:17
just from the wording that use the
13:20
technology that you
13:21
use a lot of people or adventures don't
13:22
use the level of technology that you
13:24
have invented for processes and
13:26
procedures and what I like about how you
13:30
utilize your knowledge is that you don't
13:32
scare people away with your abilities
13:35
because you could take just from
13:37
listening to you I know you can take an
13:39
entrepreneur all the way through to a
13:41
multi-million dollar business and still
13:43
be able to stick with them where a lot
13:45
of people in them off and you find
13:48
yourself struggling sometimes where
13:50
you're trying to grow them quickly or
13:52
you see the value and you're really just
13:54
trying to pull them along and they're
13:55
hesitant that's a good question
13:58
so what's funny about that is yes and I
14:02
actually had to disconnect myself from
14:04
the outcome a little bit because I found
14:07
myself last year I'm especially really
14:10
struggling with the reality that people
14:12
were not moving at a pace that I would
14:14
have liked them to move at and that
14:16
people are people and that you know life
14:19
happens and while I'm able to overcome
14:22
certain challenges quickly not everybody
14:25
is able to overcome certain challenges
14:26
quickly right and so I found myself
14:28
dragging people across the finish line
14:30
last year and it was so emotionally
14:33
draining it was taken so much out of me
14:36
and so I have a coach and he had to say
14:39
to me you know you're not gonna get
14:40
everybody everyone's not gonna win and
14:43
that was such a hard thing for me to
14:44
understand and for me to accept that not
14:48
everybody was gonna win because I was
14:50
like I don't understand why I'm putting
14:52
the winning formula right in front of
14:54
them I don't understand why they won't
14:56
win it like that doesn't make sense to
14:58
me and so I really had to kind of come
15:00
to grips with the fact that people are
15:02
people and you can only do so much you
15:04
can just be there show up with support
15:06
give them what they need and then just
15:09
hope and pray they're there one of the
15:10
people that may make it over and so we
15:12
do have like extremely high success
15:15
rates in relation to the industry like
15:18
I'm talking 60 percent 70 percent
15:20
completion higher than like most
15:23
industries when it comes to development
15:26
but I wanted a hundred percent you know
15:28
I was like I wanted a hundred percent so
15:30
I had to get out of my head with that
15:33
and just help the people who wanted to
15:34
be helped once we show up we checked on
15:37
those who don't show up and kind of
15:38
disappear I'll check on them and be like
15:40
hey where you been what's going on don't
15:42
disappoint me okay you know but I don't
15:45
allow myself to get as emotionally
15:47
attached to their decisions to like walk
15:50
away as I did before which is tough yeah
15:53
I I'm right with you I mean I when I
15:56
find myself losing sleep over a client's
15:59
product or because something's happening
16:00
at a factory in Guatemala or Honduras
16:02
and you know you do want to care I do
16:05
but you have to be able to level that
16:08
off because as you said some people will
16:10
come around in a month three months six
16:12
months nine months but not everyone is
16:14
gonna move at the same pace and I'm glad
16:16
that I'm glad you mentioned about a
16:18
coach and people don't realize everyone
16:20
can use a coach yes yeah there's there's
16:23
never a point in your life where you
16:25
shouldn't be getting coached like you do
16:28
and that there's something about the
16:29
power of intention also in action so if
16:32
you're investing in yourself if you
16:33
can't tell other people to invest them
16:35
in themselves if you're not investing in
16:36
yourself I would be a hypocrite to tell
16:40
my clients to invest thousands of
16:41
dollars into building their dream
16:42
business if I'm not investing thousands
16:45
of dollars and to growing my business
16:46
and making sure that it's strong for
16:48
them and complete for them and that I'm
16:49
complete for them and that I have all
16:51
the tools necessary and I'm constantly
16:53
educating myself and so I try to lead by
16:56
example so there is there has not been a
16:58
time in my professional life in the last
17:00
maybe seven years where I haven't had a
17:01
coach or a mentor and I spent more money
17:05
in recent years especially in the last
17:07
the last year on that professional
17:10
development because my business is at
17:12
such a higher more sophisticated level
17:15
now I need to make sure that I'm not
17:17
being disconnected from the inventors
17:19
that are in the program and so it's like
17:21
how can I make all this other stuff run
17:23
proficiently so that I can pay attention
17:25
to the people that matter the most and
17:26
that's the inventors so that requires
17:29
spending money a man does in and
17:31
sometimes it's painful yeah but on the
17:34
other side there's always rewards and
17:36
benefits yeah no and and again this is
17:40
so great having you on because you know
17:42
you are speaking our language our
17:44
adventures are listeners language and I
17:46
know our listeners right now we're going
17:49
this is awesome because yeah we're not
17:50
trying to sell anything here we're just
17:51
talking about yours is what you do and
17:54
it's just so important that people
17:55
realize that they can be they can't
17:59
prevail they just have to get the right
18:00
help right you know people try to do
18:02
these things by themselves because they
18:04
have fear and they're worried about
18:06
somebody stealing their idea or they're
18:07
embarrassed to talk about it but you
18:09
have to have a good team you have to
18:11
have like you said a couple people
18:12
helping you that you can trust and rely
18:14
on
18:14
you lose so much money the other way you
18:17
lose so much time and money I mean
18:19
unfortunately at the time when I was
18:20
building my palace and even when you
18:22
were an inventor there weren't a lot of
18:23
trustworthy people and companies out
18:25
there doing this right and so it was
18:27
like you give $10,000 to certain
18:29
companies and then you don't get what
18:30
you expect right and so there's this
18:33
fear that you're going to be scammed
18:34
because there are companies and
18:36
organizations that prey on the
18:37
desperation of adventures like these are
18:40
some of the most fragile entrepreneurs
18:42
because these are people who are taking
18:44
their dreams or taking their baby their
18:46
secret private thing that they want to
18:47
birth and they're sharing it with
18:49
someone and they're being taken
18:50
advantage of so I completely understand
18:52
the logical and rationale behind that
18:55
fear because it has been validated so
18:58
many times but you can find on any
19:00
review website when it comes to a lot of
19:03
these and bicha companies so I
19:04
understand that fear and that's why it's
19:07
important a that if you can't talk to
19:09
the person directly like if you're not
19:11
able to have access to the mind the
19:14
genius behind whatever the company is
19:16
directly there's a good possibility that
19:19
you will be forgotten that you will be
19:21
kind of lost in the fray and I
19:23
understand that as companies grow larger
19:25
access becomes a lot more slim but there
19:28
still should be an opportunity for
19:29
access I don't I think no matter how big
19:32
my company gets there should be at least
19:34
once a month where I'm getting on the
19:36
live whatever and I don't care if
19:39
there's a thousand inventors on the
19:40
phone they need to be able to hear me
19:42
speak they need to know that I'm
19:43
connected to their visions and their
19:45
dreams and that I care about them and I
19:47
think that that's what it really was
19:48
missing missing in the in the community
19:50
so that's why I love you guys so much
19:52
because I'm like these guys care like
19:54
they're not out here just like trying to
19:57
swindle people like they genuinely care
19:58
they genuinely want to make this process
20:00
easier for you and yeah
20:01
we're all here to make money because
20:03
we're all here to make money
20:05
that's what businesses do right we want
20:07
them to make money as well but the human
20:10
element is what's missing in this in
20:12
this community and I'm just happy to see
20:14
that there are people who care about the
20:16
inventors in the industry yeah well I
20:19
appreciate that and we felt the same way
20:21
when we first spoke with you at Rick you
20:23
know again he said you know you gotta
20:25
have done John she's she just you know
20:27
he just couldn't explain she's just
20:29
awesome
20:29
you know because again you're speaking
20:30
our language we know that you do care
20:32
and you have people that are working
20:33
with you right now
20:34
that have been through the process and
20:36
it's done the right way and and that's
20:39
not what we concentrate on - and being
20:41
doing this in the right sequence is just
20:44
as important as moving forward yeah I
20:46
mean it's more important because that's
20:48
how you lose time and money I think I
20:50
lost $28,000 our first year I don't have
20:54
$28,000 to lose but I lost it you know
20:57
because I didn't know what I was doing
20:58
and so our inventors are getting through
21:01
the prototyping process from like
21:03
literally an idea patent search all that
21:05
in three months because the process is
21:08
like just follow the steps don't deviate
21:15
just do just follow the steps and so
21:18
they're getting it you're gonna done in
21:19
three months like six months tops
21:21
and they're getting it done and it's
21:23
really beautiful to know that they don't
21:26
have to sit with this idea for two years
21:28
and work through it it's been you know
21:30
tens of thousands of dollars she's
21:32
trying to figure out the process yeah
21:34
it's like no no follow this process get
21:37
it done move on to mass production right
21:40
and so like that's the beautiful thing
21:43
about it is because it can be done in
21:44
three months oh yeah yeah there's no
21:47
doubt and that's what we loved about
21:48
when we spoke to the sequence is there
21:49
it just has to be followed and need
21:51
somebody to talk the inventor off the
21:55
wall because again most inventors have
21:57
their whole heart and soul in this and
21:58
they want to move quickly mm-hmm but
22:01
there has to be somebody to pull them
22:03
back and say no we didn't do this yet
22:04
you know and that's the main thing they
22:07
wanna move rapid-fire fast and I and I
22:10
and I told them this all the time at
22:11
least twice a month I say to them guys
22:14
listen
22:15
you are in a position to where you are
22:17
seeing things done at a pace that's not
22:19
normally done in the industry therefore
22:21
you're like I want to do this tomorrow
22:23
and I have to remind them that you're
22:26
already doing this really quickly so
22:28
don't try to circumvent certain steps in
22:31
the process because you want to get it
22:33
done in two months versus three months
22:34
it's like there are people who've been
22:36
doing it for ten years and they still
22:38
don't have it down I was like you trust
22:40
me like but yeah there's I have a couple
22:43
new ones who are just like I want to get
22:45
it done next month and I'm like no no
22:49
it's not gonna be done next but like
22:52
it's not gonna be done it's so like
22:55
that's the biggest challenge is because
22:56
they are that's the downside to I want
22:59
to say the challenge to the community is
23:01
that they are senior fellow inventors do
23:03
it so quickly and because people come in
23:05
at different times in the program and so
23:07
they see they come in and someone like
23:09
prototyping like receiving their first
23:11
prototype in the mill they're like I
23:12
wouldn't receive my first prototype I'm
23:14
like you haven't even filled out the
23:15
welcome email yet like you haven't even
23:19
fill out a client profile can I get you
23:22
to fill out the patent search form slow
23:30
down I'm excited that you're excited but
23:33
let's do this right because haste makes
23:34
waste and none of us have time or money
23:37
to waste yeah you're exactly right and
23:39
we get it too and that's what kind of
23:41
makes it fun but definitely have to slow
23:44
down and control and use the processes
23:46
they're there for a reason and that's
23:48
what's so important about that now is
23:50
there a phase or where an inventor
23:55
should speak with you or is it better if
23:57
they talk to you before they have done
23:58
anything or or have they gotten a patent
24:01:00
egg what's the best place for them to
24:02:00
enter your program best place is concept
24:07:00
I mean because it's like you say it's a
24:09:00
clean slate right that's best case
24:11:00
however best place however we have
24:14:00
people come in at all different steps of
24:16:00
the process if you have a finish
24:18:00
prototype and it's consumed already we
24:20:00
don't take you because it's pointless I
24:23:00
mean if all you need at that point it's
24:25:00
just like a patent search or a patent a
24:27:00
patent filing in mass
24:29:00
production we pass you off which I think
24:31:00
we did last week everyone who already
24:32:00
had products they were selling a couple
24:34:00
but they needed some mass production
24:36:00
help and I was like yeah no that's not
24:38:00
what we do I focus mainly on helping
24:40:00
people prototype out their concept for
24:42:00
proof and trying it out because I would
24:45:00
hate for them to spend tens of thousands
24:47:00
of dollars on molding and patterns and
24:50:00
then they get it and they don't like the
24:51:00
thing and it happens don't want to
24:53:00
continue moving forward with the product
24:55:00
and so for me it's all about validation
24:57:00
we do a lot of validating the product
24:59:00
beta testing through prototyping and
25:02:00
also provisional patents so we help them
25:04:00
do the patent search file the
25:06:00
provisional patent and then prototype
25:07:00
their car their concept but then we also
25:10:00
focus on the business side because
25:11:00
profitability is important to me I'm I
25:13:00
like money I love money money loves me
25:16:00
money's been good to me so I want money
25:19:00
to be good to everyone else also so we
25:22:00
what we focus on profitability it's like
25:23:00
what's your business model it's gonna be
25:25:00
some of your key partners what's the
25:26:00
value proposition you're adding into the
25:28:00
marketplace
25:29:00
my background is business strategy so
25:31:00
for me it's like I cannot in good
25:34:00
conscience help you build a product
25:35:00
that's not gonna make money so it's like
25:38:00
let's make this something let's figure
25:39:00
out how this thing makes money and so we
25:42:00
don't bring people in and who we think
25:43:00
might not make money and that doesn't
25:45:00
mean they won't make money it just means
25:47:00
I don't want to be liable if they don't
25:51:00
so we try to we try to say okay listen
25:54:00
I'm not really sure about this idea if
25:55:00
you want to move forward with it we'll
25:57:00
help you with it you could completely
25:58:00
prove me wrong but I just want you to
26:00:00
know I'm honest you know I don't know
26:07:00
everything though because the tech rot
26:09:00
made a million dollars to cheat if it
26:11:00
made a million dollars in but a
26:12:00
Christmas holiday season so there's a
26:14:00
lot of ideas that have made millions of
26:15:00
dollars that were just bonkers hmm so I
26:19:00
could be wrong but I let people know
26:21:00
like I'm not 1000% confident but I could
26:24:00
just not be that target client and I
26:26:00
could cost me just can't see it
26:28:00
mmm it happens sometimes yeah sure I
26:31:00
mean well you're giving them the best
26:34:00
shot you're helping as much as him what
26:37:00
I love about what you do is you're a
26:39:00
business person you're an entrepreneur a
26:41:00
business
26:42:00
and that turned that to help inventors
26:44:00
so you're kind of a lot of inventors
26:47:00
turn into a business person but they
26:48:00
don't have that business background so
26:50:00
you are already there and you're able to
26:52:00
help people you're taking the emotion
26:54:00
out of you get excited about the
26:56:00
products but you're taking emotion out
26:57:00
of it because you're applying business
26:59:00
processes which is so important yeah so
27:10:00
like that was my actual business and we
27:12:00
were a successful profitable company and
27:14:00
so because that was my background and
27:17:00
then fundraising for large organizations
27:19:00
like I know what people are looking for
27:21:00
what they're gonna give you dollars for
27:23:00
for the most part like I said there are
27:24:00
outliers they're outliers everywhere but
27:27:00
for the most part the formula is pretty
27:29:00
much the same yes so I focus on
27:33:00
profitability in addition to product
27:36:00
development because I'm like I don't
27:38:00
want you to just build this thing and
27:40:00
you've spent you know a few grand and it
27:43:00
sits on your mantelpiece like that I
27:45:00
mean some people like they have the
27:46:00
confidence they love that they filed a
27:48:00
patent they love that call themselves in
27:49:00
the vinter but because we focus on the
27:51:00
why and we focus on mindset in that
27:53:00
first week it's like yo like why are you
27:55:00
doing this what's the what's the goal
27:58:00
behind it you're doing this for your
27:59:00
family future generations you don't have
28:01:00
time for that thing to sit on the
28:02:00
mantelpiece how are we gonna make money
28:03:00
right and so whenever they start to eat
28:05:00
down and they you know starts to feel a
28:08:00
little like this is a thing for them I
28:10:00
remind them of their why and like what
28:13:00
you said you wanted to do this because
28:14:00
your son's at Juilliard and you gotta
28:16:00
pay that tuition because you want him to
28:18:00
do this that in other and that's on my
28:19:00
adventures I may forget your products
28:21:00
sometimes because there's a lot of you
28:22:00
so sometimes I forget what you're
28:24:00
building but I never forget you're why I
28:26:00
connect my advantage to there why yeah
28:29:00
so I might forget their product for a
28:31:00
second and then I'd be like oh but did
28:33:00
you say that you wanted to do this
28:35:00
didn't you say that you wanted to sip
28:36:00
margaritas poolside in Mexico like I
28:39:00
don't forget the why I might forget the
28:41:00
products from time to time but I don't
28:44:00
ever forget their why I'm I am so glad
28:47:00
you mention that the what and the how
28:48:00
it's a whole nother thing the why is the
28:51:00
most important thing and a lot of
28:53:00
companies even after they're successful
28:54:00
they forget the why
28:55:00
and you see that downturn on some of
28:58:00
those companies when a different CEO
28:59:00
comes in or you know the founder retires
29:02:00
you see that Y dissipates and goes away
29:04:00
and you see that that company slowly you
29:07:00
know go down and then you know it takes
29:09:00
a while for him to come back up with the
29:10:00
why so important I'm glad you mentioned
29:12:00
that
29:12:00
yeah I make them do an exercise they
29:14:00
have to write it down and then at least
29:16:00
at least once a week they have to recite
29:19:00
it it's great that your why recite your
29:22:00
mission statement have them do a mission
29:23:00
statement and have them write down their
29:25:00
whys and then once a week they're
29:26:00
supposed to they may not always do it
29:29:00
but they're supposed to and when I do
29:31:00
feel like someone's kind of slipping and
29:33:00
fading I'll shoot them a quick message
29:35:00
because I have them send it to me and
29:36:00
I'll just send it back to them
29:38:00
like hey I haven't seen you in a while
29:40:00
check out this document it's the thing
29:45:00
they wrote yeah that little push every
29:49:00
once in a while and it's and you're not
29:51:00
doing anything wrong you know it's a
29:52:00
good product you know they're a good
29:53:00
person and it could be successful and
29:55:00
all of us need that that little bit
29:57:00
every once in awhile so I think they've
29:59:00
already spent the money it's like you
30:01:00
guys have already invested the money
30:04:00
you've done the hardest part you've
30:07:00
invested in yourself don't quit now
30:10:00
don't write me a check and then go away
30:12:00
like that's the you know like that's the
30:15:00
hardest part show up but you know people
30:18:00
are people yeah that's true I mean
30:20:00
there's no doubt about it you know
30:22:00
bringing people together and what I like
30:25:00
about you're doing is you're you don't
30:27:00
talk one-on-one I mean you probably do
30:28:00
every once a while but yeah your
30:30:00
meetings I don't do you call meetings or
30:32:00
online meetings we call a QA oh okay
30:35:00
that's really nice because the answers
30:38:00
that you're giving it might have been
30:40:00
not have been a question at the time
30:41:00
someone who's listening but you
30:43:00
answering questions and everyone's
30:45:00
really gonna have the same question
30:47:00
maybe not in the same sequence but
30:49:00
they're all going to need to know those
30:50:00
yeah and what's funny is that we record
30:53:00
them and we save them into the members
30:55:00
area so people who are in the program
30:56:00
can go back and listen to listen to it
30:58:00
but what's great is it's kind of like
31:01:00
Montessori how you're like peer learning
31:04:00
and like you don't think about questions
31:06:00
until someone asked
31:08:00
and that's a little far ahead of you or
31:09:00
maybe a little bit behind you and you
realize you skip something or you
31:13:00
realize you didn't do something right or
31:15:00
you misheard something or you miss watch
31:17:00
the video or you missed and lesson all
31:19:00
together so the great thing about it is
31:21:00
while I've taught them in the lessons
31:23:00
they're getting we taught based on the
31:26:00
questions and they're able to say okay
31:28:00
I'm making a mental note that when I get
31:30:00
to this stage in the process isn't
31:32:00
something I should look for and so
31:34:00
they're really good with that and and
31:36:00
some of the questions come up repeatedly
31:37:00
and so what I do is I realize when a
31:39:00
question is something repeatedly I do a
31:41:00
video lesson on it ah great idea I'm I
31:44:00
think he's asking this question I know
31:45:00
why they keep asking this question cuz I
31:46:00
can answer in it and then I say I tell
31:49:00
my assistant Danielle Danielle could you
31:51:00
please put on the Trello board for me to
31:53:00
do a video lesson on this topic and so
31:55:00
that's right I get to realize I get to
31:58:00
see the gaps from their perspective
32:01:00
because initially I just saw the gaps
32:03:00
for mine but the questions allow me that
32:07:00
lack Q&A; is so valuable because it
32:08:00
allows me to see that even with the
32:10:00
information I provided to them they
32:11:00
still have specific questions any
32:13:00
answering and so I'm able to answer that
32:15:00
question coherently for everyone you
32:18:00
know so that's one of the good things
32:20:00
about it and so this isn't just open to
32:23:00
people locally I mean you do in the all
32:25:00
US or is the world so we were just us
32:29:00
for this because we revamp the program
32:34:00
in the last year so we were just us but
32:36:00
we opened it up this summer to the UK in
32:41:00
the US so now we have the UK in the US
32:44:00
and we'll open it up again in January to
32:48:00
other countries around the world the
32:50:00
reason I've been hesitant is because I
32:52:00
wanted to make sure I understood the
32:54:00
patent laws in other parts of the world
32:56:00
and how what we're providing actually
32:59:00
helps other places and even when it
33:01:00
comes to non-disclosure agreements like
33:02:00
you know Asia it's not an NDA Sandin in
33:05:00
so it's like little things that you have
33:06:00
to know when dealing with certain
33:08:00
countries I wanted to make sure we had
33:10:00
that down as we expand it you know
33:12:00
globally but we're heavy us all over the
33:15:00
US so every time zone we do have people
33:17:00
that are in in Mexico that are Americans
33:20:00
they're expats
33:21:00
we do have a few people who are American
33:22:00
expats who live overseas in Thailand but
33:24:00
they're still filing us and then we have
33:27:00
a few people from the UK all over we're
33:30:00
growing you must just you know after you
33:32:00
you're like this is so cool to have all
33:35:00
these people everyone listen to everyone
33:37:00
joining in throwing in their their views
33:39:00
and what's happening with them I mean
33:41:00
it's just so much fun for these
33:42:00
inventors I mean do you have any
33:44:00
products and you don't have mention in
33:46:00
there that you're really going wow this
33:47:00
is gonna be a big hit yes so what's been
33:52:00
so amazing about this is how much how
33:57:00
people are smarter than I am no like
34:01:00
that's for like the best thing the best
34:02:00
part for me because I thinking I thought
34:04:00
I was like a genius
34:05:00
technically I am but I was like ah I
34:07:00
mean these people are coming out with
34:09:00
like crazy stupid ridiculous great ideas
34:12:00
right it's like oh my goodness like
34:15:00
you're gonna completely disrupt a
34:16:00
billion dollar industry Wow there are
34:18:00
some products that are legitimately
34:20:00
gonna change the way certain practices
34:24:00
are done in certain industries and I'm
34:26:00
just like I mean the towing industry is
34:28:00
gonna get a hit from David like we have
34:31:00
some we have some products that are just
34:32:00
gonna completely change the way like
34:35:00
sunny has a product that's gonna change
34:36:00
the way diapers are made you know it's
34:39:00
just crazy like some of the products
34:41:00
that they're coming up with and so I get
34:43:00
excited about most of them yeah and all
34:45:00
of them are great ideas otherwise we
34:46:00
wouldn't let him in the program so all
34:48:00
of them are great ideas with
34:50:00
profitability but some of them are gonna
34:51:00
completely change the game it's like
34:54:00
you're really excited about it yeah what
34:56:00
I love about it too is whenever we have
34:58:00
a product and I see it out and out being
35:01:00
used you know I'm going to talked about
35:03:00
like I was in the airport and I saw a
35:05:00
backpack somebody's wearing that we had
35:06:00
made in design I was just like wow I
35:08:00
mean we manufacture that we made that
35:10:00
it's so cool you know I walked up with
35:12:00
people sometimes that I go hey we you
35:14:00
know can you like that pride they think
35:15:00
I'm crazy you know but I'm asking how do
35:19:00
you like that product you know my
35:20:00
company manufactured it and you know
35:22:00
once they tell them and they see your
35:23:00
excitement they they definitely give
35:24:00
good feedback but it's to see products
35:27:00
out in the market being used yeah it's
35:29:00
amazing yeah and I think that's one of
35:31:00
the selling points I have for my
35:32:00
inventors
35:34:00
my personal experience when I saw my
35:36:00
product being used and when people were
35:38:00
tagging me in Instagram videos and
35:40:00
YouTube videos and when somebody was
35:41:00
wearing it on TV and like a marathon the
35:44:00
mayor had it on and I was just like oh
35:46:00
my god like this is so crazy like this
35:48:00
is something that was just an idea in my
35:50:00
head like less than a year ago and now
35:52:00
people are wearing it all around the
35:54:00
world people are cycling in Europe
35:55:00
wearing this product and like sending me
35:58:00
videos and pictures and it was just so
36:00:00
incredible and so I you know I'd say to
36:03:00
them I said guys you don't understand
36:05:00
like even if you don't make a million
36:06:00
dollars there's something really special
36:08:00
and beautiful about saying something
36:11:00
that was just an idea in your head being
36:14:00
worn and being used by people all over
36:16:00
the world just that alone makes you feel
36:18:00
invincible yeah you know what's funny is
36:20:00
that and we're not all inventors and
36:23:00
there's nothing wrong somebody who want
36:25:00
to take that leap but I feel that even
36:27:00
if you're not an inventor at heart and
36:29:00
you're you know don't want to take that
36:31:00
leap or just not you they still get
36:33:00
behind innovation and inventors they
36:35:00
love seeing those people succeed and
36:37:00
they're behind their products and
36:38:00
they're using them and their job
36:40:00
Kickstarter and it seems like everyone
36:43:00
still loves innovation even inventor
36:46:00
yeah people love innovation people learn
36:48:00
new stuff yeah we like new things we
36:51:00
like new things and we also like to
36:53:00
support people and so we like to be the
36:57:00
one to say and this is something I've
36:59:00
noticed I supported their crowdfunding
37:01:00
campaign like when somebody gets really
37:03:00
big it's like I bought one of the first
37:04:00
20 products I've you know I helped with
37:07:00
there's like people love taking credit
37:11:00
like me go by like I went to high school
37:13:00
with this famous person no it's like
37:16:00
they never talked to them never had a
37:18:00
class with them but they just shared the
37:20:00
same halls and that's enough for them to
37:22:00
like say I know this person because we
37:25:00
went to the same high school even if it
37:27:00
was ten years prior you know so like
37:29:00
there is something about people loving
37:31:00
love the loving to be connected to
37:34:00
success right and so they love to
37:37:00
support new ideas and innovation because
37:39:00
they want to see you succeed they want
37:41:00
to pour into that I actually challenge
37:43:00
you I think everyone's an inventor hmm I
37:46:00
think we're all inventors
37:48:00
I think a lot of us are just afraid of
37:51:00
some of the ideas we have and we don't
37:52:00
think they're smart or we think they're
37:54:00
stupid because we've been conditioned to
37:56:00
believe that we don't have great ideas
37:58:00
from whatever life situations and
37:59:00
circumstances we've experienced but I
38:01:00
think there's an inventor in all of us I
38:03:00
think it's just a matter of taking the
38:05:00
time out and thinking about your
38:07:00
surroundings and your problems and
38:08:00
actually saying I'm gonna solve
38:09:00
something otherwise it doesn't happen
38:11:00
yeah well if there's an inventor out
38:15:00
there in a positive Venter who doesn't
38:19:00
know where to go or start or they're
38:22:00
scared that your contact on Tisha she
38:24:00
will definitely move you're wrong in the
38:26:00
right direction and you won't be scared
38:27:00
anymore when I'm scared we actually have
38:30:00
a client who didn't have an invention I
38:31:00
told you about her she did not have an
38:35:00
idea for a product
38:36:00
she called me she's like I want to be an
38:37:00
inventor she didn't have an idea and I
38:40:00
was like Maxine I cannot help you you do
38:42:00
not have a product and so I said go try
38:44:00
these things for like 30 days unless
38:46:00
circle back and see what happens 30 days
38:47:00
she still didn't have an invention she I
38:49:00
want to join the program I feel like if
38:51:00
I just join the program I'm gonna come
38:53:00
up with an idea and I was like that is
38:55:00
not how it works but I'm here for it I
38:58:00
love your enthusiasm so I'm gonna let
39:01:00
you join the program because I believe
39:02:00
in the power of intention and we're
39:04:00
gonna I just want you to do a couple of
39:06:00
things for me don't do anything else but
39:07:00
what I say so excited she had three
39:09:00
invention ideas one of them is the one
39:12:00
she came with you last week
39:13:00
in less than three months she had an
39:14:00
idea a patent provisional patent a
39:18:00
prototype and now she's working on her
39:19:00
mass production and she has like 500
39:22:00
people that want to preorder it it's
39:24:00
crazy yeah you invented an inventor and
39:35:00
I feel like she proved my theory but if
39:38:00
you do certain things you can become the
39:39:00
inventor and so I have a special place
39:42:00
in my heart what what else is going what
39:49:00
do you have coming up in the in the in
39:50:00
the future or near future with doctors
39:53:00
for yourself but inventors your your
39:55:00
systems what's going on up for that
39:57:00
people can maybe you know jump in and
39:59:00
get it good jump climb on board yes
40:02:00
a bunch of amazing stuff happening now
40:04:00
that I'm back in the u.s. we have an
40:05:00
inventors retreat happening in December
40:07:00
here in Tampa Florida but that is only
40:09:00
for people that are in our program so
40:11:00
that's a little special retreat for them
40:12:00
but then we have something for the
40:14:00
public which is the first time ever the
40:16:00
inventors track would start up week is a
40:18:00
huge startup event here in Tampa Florida
40:20:00
in February I believe it's the first
40:22:00
week of February and there's like over
40:24:00
5,000 people come they have your Garry
40:26:00
me and your Daymond John and all these
40:28:00
people come to speak and for the first
40:29:00
time ever they're gonna do an inventor's
40:31:00
track and so I'm putting that together
40:33:00
and you and Rick you guys are coming and
40:35:00
you guys gonna lead a couple of sessions
40:37:00
so I'm really excited about that because
40:39:00
I believe that not enough emphasis I'm
40:41:00
in the tech community or the side of
40:43:00
community focuses on physical consumer
40:45:00
products and you can't do anything
40:46:00
without a physical product you can't you
40:49:00
literally can't do anything without
40:50:00
physical products and so I'm excited
40:53:00
that they're embracing the consumer
40:55:00
product side of innovation again that's
40:58:00
my goal my goal is just to make products
41:00:00
sexy and fun and all of that stuff and
41:03:00
to encourage people to not leave tech
41:04:00
but to also maybe venture down the road
41:07:00
of consumer products and to kind of get
41:08:00
back into and easier market to be a part
41:11:00
of because there are a lot of investors
41:13:00
throwing money at tech companies that
41:15:00
never have a thing and not enough
41:17:00
investors are throw money at consumer
41:19:00
products that easily could make their
41:21:00
money back in less than a year right and
41:23:00
so it's like just wishing that mindset
41:25:00
back to investing in the original
41:28:00
innovators of this country and so I got
41:31:00
a big mission of heta me I know I can do
41:34:00
it though Ewing and every your support
41:37:00
and other inventors out there who
41:38:00
understand this value so for me I'm
41:41:00
gonna just be doing a lot of talks about
41:43:00
the power of innovation and invention
41:45:00
and just like maybe some more podcasts
41:48:00
just kind of getting the message out
41:49:00
there to encourage and inspire people to
41:50:00
kind of tap into that inventor inside of
41:54:00
them and to not be afraid and to know
41:56:00
that there are people and companies out
41:57:00
here like myself and like you guys that
42:00:00
really care and we're not looking to
42:01:00
take their money we're looking to help
42:03:00
them grow into the infantry they want to
42:05:00
be and launch their products into the
42:06:00
marketplace so I have some things going
42:09:00
the best way to keep up with what I'm
42:10:00
doing is I'm gonna start posting a lot
42:12:00
of this stuff on my Facebook page and
42:14:00
which is facebook.com for so
42:15:00
Dante SIA and yeah if you join the email
42:19:00
list which you can do by going to Don
42:21:00
TCC more calm join the email list I'll
42:24:00
share things going on there but yeah I'm
42:27:00
pretty sure you guys to be keeping them
42:29:00
updated as well because I have a lot of
42:30:00
stuff I'm gonna be dealing with you all
42:31:00
which I'm really looking forward to I
42:33:00
just love working with people who love
42:36:00
working with people so I'm just really
42:39:00
looking forward to that in a
42:39:00
relationship no it's great and and we're
42:42:00
so glad and we could tell you know your
42:44:00
passion really comes out when you start
42:45:00
talking about helping inventors I get so
42:48:00
excited I talked about like whenever an
42:51:00
inventor finishes their prototype and
42:53:00
they're like it's so like it's usually
42:54:00
on a Wednesday night it's like
42:55:00
show-and-tell
42:56:00
they get their penny back in the mail
42:58:00
and because Wednesday night is our
42:59:00
biggest like a tenant's night and so
43:02:00
like they come on live video and my eyes
43:04:00
light up like it's Christmas morning
43:07:00
because I don't see it beforehand
43:08:00
I tell them not to show it to me I want
43:10:00
to see it when everyone else sees it and
43:12:00
I hit so excited and there's been a
43:14:00
couple of times I've actually cried with
43:15:00
a couple of inventors where I knew how
43:16:00
difficult it was for them to like deal
43:19:00
with family issues like the loss of a
43:21:00
parent and some other stuff and when
43:23:00
they got to the other side it was such
43:24:00
an emotional you know an unveiling for
43:27:00
everyone involved because we're all
43:29:00
there for them when they lose a parent
43:30:00
and we've had a couple of inventors this
43:32:00
year lose their parents and so to be
43:34:00
there for that and to support them and
43:36:00
see them come out on the other side it's
43:38:00
such an emotional process because it's
43:40:00
like giving birth right and so there's
43:42:00
this connection that I absolutely enjoy
43:44:00
I mean I love it I never would have you
43:46:00
had told me like five six seven years
43:49:00
ago I was going to be an inventor who
43:51:00
helped inventors build inventions and
43:53:00
love it I don't know like you are crazy
43:56:00
crazy you are you are crazy but that's
44:00:00
the fun part about inventing
44:01:00
yeah well this identity yeah we are
44:06:00
gonna roll off the air I want all of our
44:09:00
listeners to know everything we spoke
44:11:00

44:25:00
cut use the contact form if they want to
44:28:00

44:33:00
and schedule a call on with a member of
44:35:00
a team it may not be me I typically

I may take some sometimes I surprise
44:42:00
people and I'll take a call that was
44:44:00
scheduled for someone else not hop on
44:45:00
the phone and they'd be like oh my god I
44:46:00
wasn't expecting you because I still
44:48:00
like listening to the ideas so sometimes
44:51:00
I'll hop on a call like once or twice a
44:53:00
week for the most part it's another
44:54:00
member of our team who just as a
44:56:00
passionate as I am there also inventors
44:58:00
so they understand of what this process
45:01:00
is like and what it feels like so yes
45:03:00
that's the best way to get on the phone
45:05:00
talk about their idea but if they just
45:08:00
want to just follow me they can follow
45:09:00
me on social media any of those outlets
45:11:00
oh good good and if there's any
45:13:00

45:46:00
because I want to get some updates on
45:48:00
how things are going I love that I love
45:50:00
that we can make it a regular thing once
45:53:00
every couple of months I talk about
45:55:00
what's happening talk about so many
45:57:00
inventors that we've worked with
45:58:00
together to make happen because I think
46:00:00
that's important for people to hear
46:02:00
about the stuff that's happening and the
46:04:00
inventors who didn't have an idea or who
46:07:00
didn't have a finished product and then
46:09:00
they move from that to mass production I
46:11:00
think those stories are important so I
46:12:00
love to come back and talk to you guys
46:14:00
about you know everyone about what we've
46:16:00
been doing together as partners to help
46:17:00
these inventors grow yeah I think that
46:20:00
will help a lot and we're definitely
46:21:00
interested because we love this business
46:23:00
